Each week we will read and watch content about cities, and convene as a group to discuss the ideas we found interesting. During week five we'll begin discussing ideas for essays on the future of cities. During weeks seven and eight, we'll workshop each other's essays, and at the end of week eight, we'll publish our essays on a Future of Cities webpage (and our own blogs).
